Times Table Rock Stars is available to pupils at Bay Primary School from Year 2 to Year 6. It is a fun, interactive way to support our pupils in learning their times tables. This format has very successfully boosted times tables recall speed for hundreds of thousands of pupils over the last 8 years in over 14,000 schools – both primary and secondary – worldwide.
Maths is a big subject and we appreciate there’s more to it than times tables and there’s more to times tables than learning them off by heart. However, a lot of the rich, interesting maths is all about the multiplicative relationships and these are hard to fully grasp without fluent recall of the tables. For that reason, learning the tables is fundamental – they are a key facilitator to the maths that sits on top. Therefore it is important to ensure our pupils are secure in their times table recall by the end of Year 4.
